Seventh Annual Confetti 5K Run & Walk a rousing success

The 7th Annual 5K Confetti Run & Walk concluded on Saturday with cannon blasts of colorful confetti, the presentation of awards and a host of excited runners and walkers.

An official Fiesta event, the 5K race attracted more than 800 participants and raised money for student scholarships.

“This was an outstanding event – not only for OLLU and the West Side but for the City of San Antonio,” said OLLU President Abel Chávez, MBA, PhD. “The 5K Confetti Run & Walk attracted people from across the metropolitan area. I am thrilled with the turnout, the enthusiasm and, of course, the money we raised for student scholarships.”

More than 800 runners and walkers participated. Medals were awarded to the top three finishers in each age group.
